Usually if a refrigerator is holding water this means that the condensate from the freezer is not going down into the pan in the bottom, the water has to go somewhere so it ends up in your refrigerator. Find the drain line in the bottom and try some how to blow it out, if you can do this and clean the pan you should be ok.

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

A temporary solution is to remove all frozen food, ice tray,shelf and bottom plate. you will see the water drain trench and a drain hole in the back center of the freezer. Unplug the drain, free it from ice or debris and flush with hot water. I have the same problem with my frig. This is not a permeant fix, but it will stop water from dripping through the vent ports The defroster may be defective or the air flow is too restricted. Good luck.

Maytag side by side fridge freezer leaking water


Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.

Water comes out freezer door


Defrost that drain with a hair dryer and remove the debris . That should solve the problem . The red you see ( this is normal ) , is the defrost heater , thawing out the frost on the coils . The defrost water HAS to go out the drain or it will freeze the opening and the defrost water will flow out thru the bottom of the freezer door .

At the top of the frig where the cold air blows into a small "vent" is it suppose to still have styrofoam the inside of the small "vent"? PC Water is leaking into frig and into veg bends.


most likely the drain is clogged..if it is, the water flows to the path of least resistance, hence, into the air vents and down under the crisper..remove rear freezer panel. the drain pan is located under evaporator. Defrost the drain pan if there is ice in it. there will be a small drain hole. this is where you need to see it gets open via hot water and all will be ok..make sure you hear or see it flowing into drain pan...Bruce Denton, master tech

Freezer not defrosting


Most likely there is a leak in your freezer seal allowing moisture to build up and form the ice blockage.
